I love Valentines
I'm so glad February is here. I can now hang Valentine quilts. I started this quilt over Christmas vacation and finished it last month. It's now hanging as my first valentines quilt. I decided to decorate for the holidays with theme quilts on the walls. It feels so good.
The center of this quilt was designed by Cheryl Almgren Taylor. It's from a pattern called Garden of Hearts. It was featured in the January/February 2011 issue of McCalls's Quilting. But when I got to the border I got carried away making all those appliqued hearts and changed the rest of the quilt. The bonus was this all came out of my stash. So this is my first stashbuster for 2011.
Also hanging on the wall for Valentines is my favorite red cat quilt. I finally finished this last year and have enjoyed it on my wall ever since. I tried to find my original pattern so I can give the author credit, but did not succeed. I bought the kit at Quiltique in Las Vegas. If anyone knows the name of this quilt please contact me.
